The International Chiropractors Association's Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics created history by presenting its 2013 Annual Conference on Chiropractic Pediatrics in both French and English.This first bilingual conference ever presented in chiropractic received excellent reviews from the attendees, who rated the topics, speakers and organization as outstanding.
The event was held at the Marriott Chateau Champlain hotel Oct. 4-6 in Montreal, Quebec, and drew more than 250 doctors of chiropractic from Canada, U.S. and Europe. The conference was co-sponsored by the Association des Chiropraticiens du Quebec.
"It was a great experience," commented a doctor from the U.S. "I thought it would be confusing with two languages, but was amazed at how smoothly it all flowed together. Great topics, wonderful speakers who knew what they were talking about, interesting research, practical workshops. Glad I went."
The 2013 conference was held in conjunction with the commencement of the first class of Diplomates in Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics (DICCPs) to graduate from Montreal. Twenty-four DCs received their DICCP diplomas from ICA President Dr. Mike McLean at a gala banquet attended by family and friends of the graduates, as well as colleagues and conference attendees. It was a very special occasion, and both Dr. McLean and ACQ President Dr. Richard Giguere congratulated the new DICCPs for their commitment to serving children through chiropractic care.
The ICA Council on Chiropractic has established itself as a leader in chiropractic pediatrics and its conferences, symposiums and DICCP program are recognized worldwide for their educational excellence. "Our goal is to provide quality education in pediatrics, whether it is at our conferences or through our postgraduate program," said ICA Pediatrics Council Chair, Lora Tanis, DC, DICCP. "It is important that DCs caring for children and pregnant women not only know how to provide care that is effective, but that their care is always safe and clinically appropriate."
